From Wilipedia:
"When the Lights Go On Again (All Over the World)" is a popular song composed during World War II. It was written by Bennie Benjamin, Sol Marcus and Eddie Seiler.

The song expresses the hopes for and end to the war. The name is from the refrain found throughout the song as is found in the first verse:
When the lights go on again all over the world And the boys are home again all over the world And rain or snow is all that may fall from the skies above A kiss won't mean "Goodbye" but "Hello to love"
Vaughn Monroe's recording reached number one in 1943. Lucky Millinder's version reached number twelve on the pop charts and reached number one on the R&B charts for two non consecutive weeks.

The reference to "lights going on again" alludes to the remark "The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our time" attributed to British statesman Sir Edward Grey on the eve of the First World War.
